This semester was a rewarding one for UB SLA. After being defunct for several semesters, UB SLA has reformed with great acclaim. Clare Rauch will be a shadow at this month’s conference on copyright and digital rights management in Ithaca, NY. Clare will introduce Tracy Mitrano, the speaker on the socio-political side of copyright. Look for her article about the experience in the Upstate New York SLA newsletter.
UB SLA is also working on two great experiences in May/June 2008. SLA will run a workshop on careers in special libraries, including finding and applying for jobs. We will have speakers from corporate, medical, and possibly law libraries. Stay tuned to the listserv for more information.
We are also working with the SLA chapter at the University of Toronto to create a day-long event about special libraries in Toronto. Both chapters will be visiting special libraries. This event is especially great as SLA is an international organization and students from both campuses will be able to network with one another and share library school experiences. Watch for an email about this fantastic upcoming trip!
